Are you equally good at telling stories orally?

I believe that all people have a "calling" in life...a "Gift from God", if you will. Frequently, it is hard to identify it because you are so close to yourself. I have been a story-teller from childhood who always held my "audience" spell-bound, but didn't realize until adulthood that that was my "Gift", and that it could acutally pay money (as an Author). 


No! If I were, I'd be an actor! Seriously, sometimes I can get a good story off, but I'm not a confident oral storyteller at all. 


I get by in my public readings. The fans seem to enjoy it, at least. I am almost never happy with my readings, though. 


I have told some good fright stories around the campfire, but I feel I can draw my audience in closer and deeper threw my words on paper. 


Not really, but on occasion I do tend to spring a tale or two. 


I have been working with toastmasters to improve my public speaking and story telling abilities. 


Yes 


Yes and no, I have been known to tell a few tales... 


Because of my oral upbringing, everything I write is designed to be read or told aloud. 


Not so much since my stroke. However, I continue to enjoy story-telling. 


Yes and no. I'm a great reader and always read/told stories to my children and their friends. But put me in front of a group of strangers and I go brain-dead :)
I love to hear storytellers and have several of their tapes.
 


I can tell a story. My father is a great storyteller, and I learned that from him. The problem is that not a lot of people want to listen -- they have their own stories to tell. 


No! I definitely am clearer and less prone to nervousness, stammering or otherwise mis-speaking myself on paper. I don't even like to read my poems to an audience, as I tend to mess up my own written rhythms and intended cadence. 


I can spin a pretty good story. Once, after telling one, a woman said to me: "How come things like that never happen to me?" I shrugged, but what I should have said was: "I embellish wildly on what really happened. Sometimes, I make up things that didn't happen." So, yes, I stretch the truth. 


I can't remember the last time I spoke to a crowd, but I think I can read a story fairly well. I should ask my little nephew how his Uncle Jeff reads to him.
